The Hills Live After Show Becomes North American Sensation

MTV Canada’s home-grown smash THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW has captured the eyes of youth both north and south of the 49th parallel. From Omaha to Ottawa, millions of people across North America are watching the Canadian production, which airs live from MTV Canada’s studios at the Masonic Temple in Toronto. After 10 weeks of simulcast to the U.S., THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW ranks #2 (P12-34) on MTV U.S. following the #1 ranked mega-hit series THE HILLS**. In Canada, the show ranks #1 (P12-34) across all specialty television in its timeslot, placing MTV behind only CTV and Global across all Canadian television*. For the first time ever this Monday, Dec. 22 beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET, hosts Dan Levy and Jessi Cruickshank join the entire HILLS cast live in the Big Apple for THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW season finale including an unforgettable live performance by The Pussycat Dolls.

“THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW took on a life of its own this season, becoming buzzed-about appointment hit television in its own right,” said Brad Schwartz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Much MTV Group, CTV Inc. “Whether it was live in studio, live via webcam, live online, or live on TV across Canada and the United States, the show brought young people together into a virtual community that catalyzed communication and engaged our passionate HILLS audience, far beyond just a normal television show.”

With Dan and Jessi’s popularity soaring across the continent, they have become more than just experts on THE HILLS, they’ve become genuine pop culture celebrities. As a result, MTV in Canada has spun the weekly series THE HILLS LIVE AFTER SHOW into a new, daily series, simply titled THE AFTER SHOW. Airing live every Tuesday – Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET on MTV, the daily, interactive, pop-culture series gives viewers more of what they want – more gossip, more information, and most of all more Dan and Jessi.
